Delivering Cost Effective Encryption, Hardware Security Modules and Key Management Services in the Cloud to Protect Sensitive and Regulated Data
Organizations today face numerous challenges when it comes to protecting sensitive data across their diverse IT infrastructures and cloud environments. Not only must they field the costs of deploying hardware and software and managing a wide range of data security technologies to protect their applications and information, they must also navigate the complexity of deciding which data needs protecting and meeting a wide range of compliance mandates and regulations.
To help data owners, IT organizations and data security teams address these challenges, Gemalto is excited to announce the launch of our new data security-as-a-service platform, SafeNet Data Protection On Demand. Released this week, this new cloud-based data protection platform will reinvent the way hardware security modules, key management and encryption are bought, delivered, provisioned, and managed. No more hardware. No more software. No more up-front capital investment. Just data protection services from the cloud and on demand.
With SafeNet Data Protection On Demand, companies have a single data protection platform that integrates with existing IT systems, DevOps tools, and cloud services to protect sensitive information everywhere via hardware security module, key management, and data encryption services that can scale up and down as needed. Organizations can use this unique marketplace approach to simply point and click to choose and deploy the following offerings to support a wide range of specific data protection use cases:
- Hardware Security Module On Demand: Generate and secure cryptographic keys for a wide range of applications including PKI private key protection, TDE database protection, and digital signature services.
- Key Broker On Demand: Facilitates enterprise-controlled key management by providing simple and easy to deploy control over data that is encrypted with SaaS and cloud service vendors. Customers will be able to use this capability with a wide range of cloud services, including Salesforce, Amazon Web Services, Google, and Microsoft as well as others.
- Key Management on Demand: Provides a way of managing keys throughout their lifecycle and controlling security policies across multi-cloud environments.
- Encryption on Demand: Protects sensitive data wherever it’s stored, including virtual machines, big data and storage environments, databases, folders and more.
When it comes to security for the cloud, the Internet of Things and broader digital transformation, SafeNet Data Protection On Demand makes encryption, HSMs and key management much simpler for IT organizations and data security teams. According to Garrett Bekker at 451 Research, “Complexity has always been a pain point for organizations when it comes to deploying encryption and key management, and this challenge will be magnified by the growth of cloud computing and the Internet of Things. By providing organizations with a single consolidated platform accessible through an online marketplace, the solution simplifies the way companies consume security. Gemalto’s SafeNet Data Protection On Demand allows enterprises of all sizes to benefit from robust data protection services while also addressing industry challenges like the growing shortage of skilled security personnel.”
Companies benefit from SafeNet Data Protection On Demand’s integrations with the most widely deployed IT products, applications and cloud services from Microsoft, IBM, NetApp, Oracle, SAP and other companies. This means organizations can centrally deploy and manage data security across their entire extended enterprise and eliminate islands of data security using either a simple management interface or via the extensive REST API interface.
Our initial release offers a wide range of Hardware Security Modules On Demand and Key Management On Demand services, including Salesforce Key Broker On Demand, Digital Signing and Oracle TDE Database Key Vault on Demand. We will continue to add additional Encryption On Demand, Hardware Security On Demand, and Key Management On Demand services over time, giving users an ever-expanding menu of data protection on demand applications at their fingertips.
We are also offering a free 30-day evaluation trial for organizations to experience SafeNet Data Protection On Demand first hand.
Gemalto will be showcasing SafeNet Data Protection On Demand along with Capgemini at Dreamforce this week (November 6-9) in San Francisco at Booth #1018.
